Healthy Places, Healthy Lives is a partnership programme which helps to reduce health inequalities and improve population health.
Delivery of the programme enables the accelerated take up and learning from experience, best practice and improvement science to influence commissioners, providers, Health and Wellbeing Boards, and partners in the public sector, and meet the challenges of addressing health inequalities within their own environment.
What can Healthy Places, Healthy Lives offer you?
Healthy Places, Healthy Lives is a combination of online learning activities available to you for 12 months. Any number of people within a partnership may access these, either from the office or at home, removing the need to travel, saving you time and money, and cutting down on your carbon footprint.Additional modules, tailored to your partnership's local requirements, are also available.

Healthy Places, Healthy Lives (HPHL) mapping tool
The NHS location intelligence mapping tool is both intuitive and functionally rich, enabling experienced analysts and ‘non-technical’ users alike to produce complex mapping in minutes, including:
- labelled pins
- heat mapping and boundaries
- rapid visualisation and dissemination of a wide range of multiple datasets.
By identifying and utilising additional datasets (eg, street level crime, population and retail locations) to enhance the local picture, it becomes possible to quickly understand what good (and not so good) looks like. This gives the capability to more easily and quickly identify potential ‘causes of the causes’ of specific and localised health related issues.
Email email@example.com for more information on the mapping package and how you can access it.
